Korean BBQ for Saturday

Thank you...on my list now

Korean BBQ for Saturday

I will try KGH next time. We went to Chako and was very underwhelmed.

Korean BBQ for Saturday

Any ideas?

Worst in Toronto

Chippy's....My Wife and I travel frequently, we alsays use this "hole in the wall" as a laugh track to Hipster crapolla to our friends in other cities. Way too loud music, shitty service and attitude in the stratosphere. This place belongs as a joke in the Onion or worse. And yes, I do have a beard :)

Chako? Korean BBQ Grill Chain? Really struggling here.

Korean BBQ for Saturday

Hi there: I am taking out 6 people for dinner on Saturday in the Markham area and want to do Korean BBQ (cook your own). Any suggestions? 4 out of the 6 are younger teenagers but all are open minded. I have looked at the previous posts but most are 2-4 years old. Thanks

Danforth for Sunday Night

Got the last 5 places at 530pm at -30 degrees? Wow those people love their pizza. Had a great time and the kids loved the pizza! Thanks all !

Danforth for Sunday Night

Thanks all....couldnt get a reservation at Libretto but we will try our luck anyways. The Rodeo will have to wait....it looks fun.

Danforth for Sunday Night

OK now I am thinking Globe instead of Greek :) Any thoughts on a not to be missed dish if it is on the recent menu?

Danforth for Sunday Night

Taking the teens to a concert Sunday night at Danforth Music Hall and I need a walking distance greek restaurant. Mezes, Messini, Avli, and Pan on the Danforth all look ok. Thoughts on these? Any other recs? Thanks much!

Ramen in GTA East

Is there really no options in Durham? We now have passable Pho...no Ramen?

Ramen in GTA East

I live in Whitby but willing to travel for Ramen. Any suggestions in Durham?...?

Robber no match for the owner of Barberians this morning...

Now if someone could identify the lady who stole his cellphone on the street that would be a Christmas present !!!

"East Coast" Style Donairs in Toronto?

East Coast Donairs in Oshawa is excellent! They make them Halifax style although they are from New Brunswick. Great service as well.

Whitby/Durham restaurants that don't suck

Yes that is the location. I was told the place just opened. Maybe I was mistaken? Anyways, thought it was great. Tried 999 about a year ago and found the place a little dirty when I was there. Maybe I'll pop in again.

Whitby/Durham restaurants that don't suck

Just had my 2nd lunch at Pho Metro in Whitby. Everything is made in house. Best Pho in Durham hands down, great sides and amazing rolls. Nice atmosphere, pleasant service. This is their 2nd location. Their first location has been commented on many times by fellow chowhounders.
Finally a good option close to home!

ISO Pandan Leaves

Thank you.....Suggestions on this dish?

ISO Pandan Leaves

Anyone know where I can find these leaves in Scarborough/Durham?
Making a Sri Lankan dish that emphasizes the need for this. Any suggested alternatives?

Atlantic Tastes in Toronto

Atlantic Tastes in Toronto

I have the same guilty pleasure....sigh..

Atlantic Tastes in Toronto

I have spent most of my summer going back and forth from Toronto to New England and have been eating a lot of steamer clams and fried whole clams. I cant seem to find fresh versions in restaurants in Toronto. Any suggestions? I am obviously not looking in the wrong places.

Whitby/Durham restaurants that don't suck

Yes it is out back. The way they designed it, you feel like you are in someones backyard, not in a parking lot. They also have some heaters and lounge seating as well.

Whitby/Durham restaurants that don't suck

I have tried the 1847 Bistro in Brooklin now 3 times and it has gotten progressively better each time. Great beer selection, cool food and great patio. The lamb burger with fries is very good, so is the cerviche.

Calgary Night Out

Thanks....will try your suggestion

Shediac Suggestions

Thank you for the suggestion of Bayou. It was quite good. Bun was a little larger than expected but it was good as well.
Cheers!

Calgary Night Out

Hello Calgary Hounds. I am hosting a work get together in 3 weeks time on a Saturday night. I would like a upscale casual restaurant with interesting food and drinks and the ability to chill afterwards (like a pool table or music). Any thoughts? For about 10 people. Thanks!

Shediac Suggestions

I will be in Shediac late Sunday afternoon and am looking for a feed of local seafood. Lobster, lobster roll, fried clams/oysters etc. I checked the boards but there is nothing current on Shediac. Any suggestions?

Chowfind: An authentic tasting 'Instant' Singapore Laksa Noodle La Mien good enough for Chowhounders!

The Miliken store only has the Curry...I bought 4 and there were only 4 left.

I also tried the Veal Sandwiches at Marashino yesterday. The veal was so tender not like most others that are a bit like leather. I will ask for more sauce next time and some hot peppers. This place really is a GEM!!
